 non payment of x bps arrear pension/commutation
Sir, It is not only the case of Mr.sridar(email 27/4) but also so many others including myself.The declaration forms were submitted in Jan 2016 and PPG dept also confirmed the received, it is disheartening to note some people were not paid the arrears till date. The pensioners assn should ascertain the reason and should inform its members. When I contact my Trichy pensioners assn, he is in dark and could not give a reply.
The Bengal circle website is the only solace to ventilate our plight. Mr.Pratip chaudhuri our ex chairman has pointed out in his face book that 8% interest should be paid for delayed payment and also the official concerned to punished for in ordinate delay. Who will Punish Our Chennai LHO PPG dept. I think god will also smile at the sufferings of Poor SBI pensioners and he will also be silent against SBI TOP officials.
 
Comment: This is a typical picture of the plight of hapless pensioners. It is for this reason that we should have strong Pensioners' Association units at all centres. Unfortunately, we cannot help from here. A strict vigil should be kept at LHO level by the Association functionaries, to ensure that these aberrations do not take place. If necessary, the matter should be strongly taken up with the CGM of the Circle.

 Payment of interest on commutation amount paid on 22/03/2016 Bangalore circle
Dear Commarade, please let us know whether Bank will provide details of commutation recovery made and arrears of pension and difference commutation amount paid to the pensioners. Any forward movement in payment of interest on commutation amount or refund of interest on _ve pension arrears recovery.
Thanks & Regards.
 
Comment: We understand that the system of payment of additional commutation on revised pension has remained the same for this Bipartite too. But unlike the earlier Bipartites, the commuted pension calculated on revised pension, is less than the originally commuted pension(calculated on pre revised pension). This has led to recovery of pension. This situation had not arisen earlier.
Some allowances which do not rank for pension, had been enhanced this time, resulting in an anomalous position.

Comment: We regret that we shall not be able to help you from Kolkata. If you had not been permitted by the bank, to continue your housing loan, beyond your date of retirement, with recovery of instalments from your pension, you ought to have liquidated the loan from your PF dues, at the time of retirement. We are shocked to learn that you have been denied payment of your other superannuation dues, for 15 years.
We suggest that you liquidate your housing loan from your PF and Gratuity dues, immediately, with the assistance of your Association and the ppg Dept of your LHO.

Central Board of Direct Taxes
PRESS RELEASE
New Delhi, 11
th March, 2016
Subject: - Non-enforcement of recovery of demand against the assessee where
tax has been deducted but not deposited by the deductor - regarding
The Central Board of Direct Taxes had issued directions to the field offices
that taxpayers whose tax has been deducted at source but not deposited to the
Government’s account by the deductor, will not be asked to pay the demand to the
extent tax has been deducted from his income. A letter to this effect was issued on
01.06.2015. Through this letter an embargo had been put on direct demand against
the assessees in cases where the tax demand is on account of tax-credit mismatch
due to non-payment of TDS to the Government account by the deductor.
Instances have come to the notice of the Board that these directions are not
being strictly followed in field offices. An Office Memorandum has therefore been
issued on 11.03.2015 reiterating the contents of the letter. It has been reemphasized
that the assessing officers shall not enforce demands created on
account of mismatch of credit due to non-payment of TDS amount to the credit of
the Government by the deductor.
The Office Memorandum dated 11.03.2016 is available on the website
of the Department www.incometaxindia.gov.in.

 Incometax
Most of or atleast good number of Pension branches are not properly remitting the dues collected from TDS and pension. They are taking their own putting us if not all some people into unnecessary trouble as sometimes we may not at our hometown to call on the branch. As AS 26 with IT is not updated even upto Feb. it is difficult to assess the tax as our investments are with different agencies results over payment resulting refund that too last year due arrears a huge amount to be refunded. Branches are lethargic better not to talk about Senior officials simply doing post office work. Disgusting. Our loyalty only makes us stick on though we could get attractive returns elsewhere.If the giant does not shatter its lethargyour it will pay the price.I am deeply angered and reconciling to fate. No response to mails not at all opened.
 
Comment: The question of not opening or responding to mails or posts, will at least not be applicable to us.
We agree that the TDS mechanism is not functioning properly. Very often the job is being handled to outside agencies, who are making mistakes. If the PAN number is wrongly stated by them, the TDS amount will either not get credited correctly, or lie in hibernation. The TDS statements being generated at branches, are also showing accumulated figures, which are useless for the purpose of filing I Tax returns.
We suggest that You go by the TDS figure shown in AS 26 form, and file your return accordingly. If some wrong TDS has been made by the bank, seek a refund in your return.

 Our Case No., 1875/2013
It is indeed frustrating that our case is being handled in a very casual manner. It seems there is absolutely no concern for the hapless pensioners. A friend of mine who , whenever he calls me, used to ask about the progress of the case and used to wonder whether we will ever get justice during our life time. But sadly this person breathed his last on the 17th of this month. There must be several like him. It all makes me believe that our case will never get a favourable verdict. I am expressing only my anguish and not casting aspersions on anybody.

Comment: It is possible that the commutation of pension for those who took VRS, or even others, in March 2001, was given effect from June or July, 2001. In that case restoration will take place only from June or July 2016.

 Delhi High Court Case No WP 1875/2013
It is disgusting to note that Delhi High Court has fixed the next date of hearing on 28th July.Back ground has not been given. Justice delayed is justice denied.
2. Members would remember that Supreme court while tranferring the case in 2013 to Delhi High Court ordered the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court to ensure that the case be disposed of within SIX months. Three years have already passed away. No need to mention the conditions of dieing pensioners. God knows whether on 28th July the case will be heard at all . There may be so many happennings. Bench may be changed . Govt may ask for time to conclude the proceedings of so called Committee.
3. I suggest that our Federation should examine the feasibility of immediately going to Supreme and inform them that the case although part heheard is yet to be concluded and dates are being extended in one pretext or other.Request the Supreme court to get an order that our case should be case heard on merit say, within a month.

 DHC Case
I am sure the 7th bipartite retirees will be highly disappointed, dejected and disgusted to hear the news of the case being adjourned to 28.7.2016. Of course, we are accustomed to get this kind of news for the last 15 years, but the recent developments were giving a ray hope in our minds that justice will finally be delivered at least at the end of our journey.

What is more distressing is the fact that the Federation has not come out with at least brief details of what transpired at the court, the outcome of the GOI's Committee recommendations etc. There is no doubt that this shocking development would hasten the departure of some more hapless, poor souls without seeing the ends of justice in this life. If the Federation has at least some apathy, concern and understanding of its members' hurt feelings, let them come out with details as to why such a long adjournment has taken place, notwithstanding the summer vacation. I dont think any secrecy is involved in withholding the deliberations that have taken place in the court to warrant such a long adjournment.

The pensioners who have retired after Nov2012 has been paid the arrears of salary, arrears of pension,arrears of commutation, arrears of pension during Apr2015 to 31.3.2016. As the commutation of pension paid is exempted from Income tax, it would of great help if banks post the details in the pensioners website to enable us to correctly file IT returns and pay tax, as pension paying branch do not have details

Comment: You got the commutation lumpsum in July, 2001. We presume that you had been getting commuted or reduced pension from July 2001 onwards. In that case, the period of commutation will end after 180 months starting from July 2001, I.e. in June 2016. So you should get fully restored pension from July 2016.

I retired from the Bank on 31st March 2001 and had opted for commutation. As per the letter dated 25-06-2001 addressed to the Pension Paying Branch ( Ponda(Goa) and copy endorsed to me, the pension was required to be restored w.e.f. 1st April 2016. This has not been done as is evident from the pension slip of April 2016
On contacting PPG Dept. Mumbai LHO over phone I was told that the Pension will be restored from 1st June 2016.

It is a regular pop-up at SBI Pensioners' site on every log-in; I applied for the change to the pension paying branch ( Contai-00057) several times since 2010, they tried but not effective due to site-errors.

It is required to change the E-mail ID as "askgsdas@gmail.com" in place of the present E-mail ID of pension paying branch, “SBI.00057@SBI.CO.IN”, as it appearing on my pension slips. Any mail from PPG to me goes to the pension paying branch. The change of my present E-mail ID to my pension-profile will facilitate me to receive mails from PPG Dept. & also the monthly pension slips to my personal E-mail account. For the effective change I solicit your kind intervention and guidance.

 SHORTAGE OF GRATUITY PAID TO 7th BPS RETIREES
Dear Friends,

I retired voluntarily from service on the 30th April 2016 from Zonal Office at Ernakulam. My arrears of one month on account of 7th BPS was paid to me in 2000 after signing the 7th BPS. But difference in Gratuity was not paid to me.
I have taken up the matter with our Thiruvananthapuram LHO who have taken up the matter with Chennai LHO as the former was not opened at the time of payment of arrears.

2. There will be many like me and I have to urge upon all of them to take up the matter with their respective LHO's and keep me advised of the developments either through this site or to my e-mail ID or Mobile or Land Phone as appended. Also please inform me your name, address, phone number and e-mail ID simultaneously.

e-mail ID: rmi_1948@yahoo.co.in
mobile phone:+ 91 9972 229 339
land line No:+91 89 41242065.

This will enable us to present our case jointly to Corporate Centre after waiting for a reasonable time, say one month.

Yours faithfully,

M. Gopalakrishna Iyer.
 
Comment: You could not have retired in April, 2016. We presume it was before 2000, as your wage arrears was paid in 2000. Although you have taken up the issue of Gratuity after 16 years, we commend your spirit, and your offer to similarly affected pensioners. If our website can provide a common platform of communication among them, we will be glad.

 FLOATER FAMILY HEALTH INSURANCE SCHEME.
Dear Sir,

I enrolled myself as a member of the captioned insurance policy "B" on 16.01.2016. I am suffering from High Blood Pressure and my wife from High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Colastrol and Arthritis and are undergoing domiciliary treatment since some time past. Please let me know from which date I am eligible to claim reimbursement under the scheme.
With thanks and regards.
 
Comment: We presume that you have already received your ID card from the insurance company. Even if you haven't, you are entitled to claim reimbursement of domiciliary treatment expenses incurred from 1st Feb onwards. You may submit your bills as per rules of the scheme, through your pension paying branch and CM HR, to the TPA. You may contact your TPA for assistance, on their toll free numbers.

Dear Sir/Madam,
Kindly note and bear with us that due to unforeseen development, pension for this month will be credited in the afternoon instead of morning of 25th April, 2016. Inconvenience is regretted.
Regards,
CGM ( HR )
 
Comment: We are trying to ascertain the cause of this " unforeseen development ", and prevent its recurrence, as a delay of even a few hours in payment of meagre pension to aged pensioners, causes a lot of suffering.

 MEDICLAIM POLICY A-DOMICILARY TREATMENT
I am a member of Policy A as well as Policy B(for 3 lacs).My wife had treatment for Heart disease before 16th march, since policy B was covered from 16/03/2016, I claimed the bill for Rs.12000/= for domiciliary treatment under policy A before 31/3/2016.
Since Rembs members will be migrated from 1st April 2016(as per original proposal).Kindly clarify whether I will be paid full amount(i.e entitled for 15% of 3 lacs proposed for Policy A) or only rs.7000/-(1% max as per original entitlement under rembs) and I will be the looser if Maximum of rs.7000/= is paid.kindly clarify, so that members may not put in to loss like me,they can wait till it is migrated.
 
Comment: For those pensioners who are already rembs members, and have also enrolled for policy B, it would always be advisable to utilize the domiciliary treatment entitlement of 15% of the assured sum of policy B, instead of depleting the balance in policy A.
You have to indicate on the bill, as to which policy you wish to utilize. Your wife's domiciliary treatment bill incurred after 31st March would have been covered under policy A, had not the date of migration not been shifted from 1st to 16th April. As the treatment was made prior to 16th March, the bill is not reimbursable under policy B either. You will have to settle for payment upto Rs 7000, under erstwhile REMBS, that too, if you submit your bill in old system, immediately.

 Payment of interest on commutation amount paid on 22/03/2016 Bangalore circle
Dear Commarade, I am glad that your website is restored and members views are posted immediately with your response. Further I want to inform that CGM(HR) has advised through mail that April month pension will be credited in the afternoon not in the morning due to unforeseen development. Please post us with what is the development if you are aware.
Thanks & regards

Comment: We have no explanation about the "unforeseen development" advised by the bank, in the name of CGM HR, through text messages sent to individual pensioners. We presume that the shifting of pension payment from morning to evening of 25th April, is on account of lack of preparedness at Belapur.

 unlawful recovery on additional commutation
i retired on 28.02.2014. i was paid commutation on 23.03.2014. as per 10th bipartite my pension revised upward and i was paid additional commutation on 11.04.2016.but the additional commutation recovered from 23.03.2014 instead of from date of payment. as per Central Civil Pension Rules, rule 10 the govt clarifies that additional commutation to be treated as separate and to be recovered from date of credit. how to rectify this. should the case be taken up thro pensioners association or individual to approach court. please clarify.
 
Comment: We are in agreement with you that this anomalous and penal situation should be rectified. If collective efforts of Associations and Federation fail, affected pensioners may seek legal recourse, individually.

 Mediclaim policy A
I was a REMBS member of Rs 7 lakh.I have not opted for policy B.So I am a policy A member.
Today(22nd April ) contacted TPA to enquire about the process of submission of domicilary treatment bill as I am yet to receive new ID Card. Got the information from them that : they have not yet received any information about group A from bank till date. According to him I am supposed to contact Bank about this ,not TPA. But from your website I am getting different information.So Please help .
 
Comment: Your presumption is correct. Initially, REMBS members were supposed to be migrated automatically to the Mediclaim policy A with their residual balances, as on 31st March, 2016. Later this date was shifted by the bank to 15th April. So the policy A holders should be entitled to claim benefits, including reimbursement of domiciliary treatment bills.
We shall ascertain the correct position, and upload it in this website.

Comment: He is covered upto 15th April, under REMBS, under old rules and under new Mediclaim policy after 15th April. Reimbursement should be claimed according.

 New Medical Ins. scheme
I wrote in regard to inclusion of all the pensioners ,whatsoever be the reason, now the lat date is 30th April which very near, I received the positive reply . Now will u pl. inform the outcome of the efforts made in this regard, as the Bank has to do nothing. The pensioner had to pay premium every year for ots renewal. Thanks.
 
Comment: Only those pensioners who had been removed from service, or discharged, have been left outside the purview of the new Mediclaim policy. This is despite strong persuasion by our Federation. This is still possible.
